Comfortable and secure
Our WF-1000XM5 earbuds feature a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We've designed the WF-1000XM5 utilising extensive ear-shape data collated since introducing the world's first in-ear headphones in 1982. Our continuous evaluation of different ear shapes and sensitivities has helped us design an ideal earbud shape, secure and comfortable for almost everybody.
A clear, stable Bluetooth signal
These earbuds utilise a powerful new Integrated Processor V2, which transmits a Bluetooth signal simultaneously to and from both ears, so you can enjoy a stable sound.These earbuds are ready for LE Audio (Beta version), a next generation Bluetooth audio that enables ultra low latency - ideal for gaming.A) Conventional L to R Relay BT Transmission.B) WF-1000XM5 L/R Simultaneous BT Transmission
Adjusts to the world around you
Adaptive Sound Control senses where you are and what you're doing, then uses AI to change ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it will learn your behaviour, recognise locations you visit often, and tailor the sound to suit your location.
The Best Noise Cancellation
The WF-1000XM5 reduces external noise over a wide bandwidth, from low to high frequencies. It contains two proprietary processors that cancel more external noise than ever, a new high-performance driver unit Dynamic Driver X, dual feedback microphones, and innovative Noise Isolation Earbud Tips for a more stable fit. Real-time noise-cancelling processing can be optimised to provide the best performance for your environment, so you will hear a big difference, especially in aeroplanes, trains, or buses.
Multi Noise Sensor technology
Three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics, improve low-frequency cancellation performance. This is our biggest ever step forward in noise cancelling, resulting in ambient sound captured even more accurately. So you can enjoy one of our purest sounds.
A comfortable fit and better sound insulation
New Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made from an exclusive material that improves fitting and increases comfort thanks to reduced pressure in the ear due to a newly designed shape. The earbuds come in four sizes, including SS.
Packaging made from 100% paper materials
We continue to advance the adoption of Sony's proprietary paper, Original Blended Material, for the packaging of our flagship headphone model, the 1000X series (the WF-1000XM5, WF-1000XM4 and WH-1000XM5). Original Blended Material is an environmentally conscious paper material made from bamboo, sugarcane fibres, and post-consumer recycled paper.

Sony's best ever call quality
Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network (DNN) processing, and bone conduction sensors, your voice will come through clear and natural, even in a noisy environment. And if you're outdoors, the wind noise reduction structure will minimise any wind whooshes, so you always know you'll be heard.
Detects speech vibrations to enhance clarity
Bone conduction sensors pick up the vibration of your voice directly from your skull bones, helping to isolate your speech from ambient sounds and background noise, for clear calls in even loud environments.
Talk and hear only ambient sound
You can set Speak-to-Chat to pause the music as soon as you start speaking to someone, so you can hear just ambient sound and conduct a conversation - handy if you want to keep your headphones on or your hands are full. Once your chat is over, your music will start playing again automatically.
Instant pause. Instant play.
1. Just take the earbuds out of your ears, and the music stops - a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds.2. Pop the earbuds back in, and the music starts again.
Unbeatable Noise Cancellation
Exclusively developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V2 unlocks the full potential of our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e. This unique combination of technology controls the six microphones, across both ears, to deliver unprecedented noise-cancelling quality that can be adapted to provide the best performance for your environment.
A new sound experience for AR gaming
If you're looking for new entertainment options beyond music and movies, the WF-1000XM5 uses new sensors and spatial sound technology to deliver immersive sound for Augmented Reality games like "Ingress" from Niantic.When playing "Ingress" with the WF-1000XM5, sensor and spatial sound technologies deliver a new experience: using head tracking, the sound is conveyed from different directions to line up perfectly with the action on the screen.

Small and beautifully designed
With an improved glossy texture and a more luxurious feel, these earbuds fit comfortably in your ears while keeping out external sounds.By downsizing the headphone body and optimising the placement of the components, the earbud is now approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We've also reduced the size of the charging case, so it will sit even more sleekly in your pocket.
Dolby Atmos Experience
With a Sony WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter connected to a BRAVIA XR TV, your headphones create the ideal arrangement of phantom speakers all around you so you can enjoy a Dolby Atmos experience. Be immersed in the scene and feel right at the heart of the action.
Enjoy High-Resolution Audio
The WF-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality that is closer than ever to the studio recording.
AI technology for precision sound
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme upscales compressed digital music files in real-time, including those from popular streaming services. It dynamically recognises each song's instrumentation, musical genre and individual elements, and restores high-range sound lost in compression.A = Expanded audio dynamics (strings and whisper-quiet subtleties)B = Restored high frequencies (acoustic and vocal instrument realism)
Head tracking ensures a realistic and compelling listening experience by automatically adjusting sound fields to compensate for your head movement. Sounds are precisely aligned with your smartphone screen, even as you move, to completely involve you in your viewing by connecting to compatible smartphones/services.
Feel a more stable fitting earbud
Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material which reduces noise in the high-frequency range. Soft and elastic, they maximise the contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, insulating your sound and reducing noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more secure, stable fit.
Astonishing sound quality
The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X provides wide frequency reproduction, enabling deeper bass, subtle vocals and enhanced fine detail, especially on high-pitched instruments. The consummate performance, across the full range of frequencies, delivers a smooth and natural sound regardless of what you're listening to.
New high-quality sound and noise cancelling driver unit
The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X able to reproduce lower frequencies has been improved using a dome-edge separation structure that combines different materials, allowing for a more accurate generation of cancellation waves in the lower frequencies.
Mute the outside world for clear call quality
With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise, increase accuracy and extract your voice clearly in various environments.
Always hear and be heard
A wind noise reduction structure and a mesh wrap in the microphone will minimise noise during calls so you can be heard clearly in windy conditions.
For total convenience, the WF-1000XM5 can be paired with two Bluetooth devices simultaneously so, when a call comes in, your headphones can automatically connect to the right one. With the multipoint connection you can quickly switch to a ringing device, then back by simply resuming playback on the other device.
Listen safely with Sony | Headphones Connect app
To help protect your ears, you can check your volume compared to data from the World Health Organization (WHO). For example, when 80% of the WHO weekly sound pressure standard is reached, the volume will automatically drop to a level with less impact on your ear. If you want to track the benefits, you can visualise the time that noise cancellation has protected your ears from sounds that could harm your hearing.
How do you like to listen?
